What is Local Cryotherapy?

Local Cryotherapy is the application of a safe and refreshing stream of liquid nitrogen vapor applied to specific body parts to alleviate aches & pains, reduce inflammation, increase circulation and potentially reduce injury recovery time.

Crisp liquid nitrogen vapors, with a temperature of -260 ℉, are applied to the body to provide an analgesic effect (pain relief) to the top layer of skin while penetrating deeper to initially reduce swelling and inflammation. This provides relief from your body’s natural response to an injury, which is to send more white blood cells, oxygen and nutrients to the injury site through increased blood flow. While this process is necessary to healing, it can also be painful due to increased nerve sensitivity caused by swelling and excess fluid. After the session ends, the skin and tissue temperature return to normal which stimulates an increase in circulation. This delivers freshly oxygenated nutrient rich blood to aid in the healing process.

What is the Difference Between Local Cryotherapy & Whole Body Cryotherapy?

Whole Body Cryotherapy at Livkraft is meant to illicit a systemic whole body response to increase circulation and reduce inflammation through exposure to an extremely cold environment utilizing CryoScience Cryo Arctic breathable air technology. This technology utilizes liquid nitrogen to cool breathable air inside the Arctic vs. other La Jolla cryotherapy centers that expose users directly to a high quantity of nitrogen vapors. This is why other San Diego cryotherapy centers require your head be outside of the chamber during a session. In terms of treatment time, Livkraft whole body cryotherapy is always three (3) minutes long.

Local Cryotherapy at Livkraft is meant to provide targeted relief on a deeper level to specific areas through the use of a concentrated stream of liquid nitrogen. The CryoScience Cryo Penguin is equipped with state of the art technology to ensure the highest safety standards in the industry. During the session the Penguin constantly measures your skin temperature, alerting your technician of the optimal time to spend on each area.

Session times vary from 5-10 minutes depending what body part is receiving local cryotherapy. The general rule is the larger the area, such as the lower back, the longer the treatment. The smaller the area such as a foot or ankle, the shorter the treatment.

Cryotherapy Facial @ Livkraft

Close your eyes, imagine feeling a rush of revitalizing and invigorating cool air on a brisk winter morning standing on a dock in Flam, Norway about to embark on a journey down the Aurlandfjord that is what a Cryotherapy Facial feels like. Except you are steps from the beach in sunny San Diego without the three layers of sweaters, a down jacket, scarf and winter hat.

Nitrogen vapors with a temperature of -260 ℉ are gently applied around your face for an extremely refreshing and beneficial experience. As the skin temperature is cooled to between 50 ℉ – 60℉ , pores and the skin tighten and blood flow is restricted as the vessels constrict assisting to reduce any facial swelling or puffiness Once the skin temperature returns to normal, skin on the face, forehead and neck receive increased blood flow due to vasodilation of the vessels. This increased blood flow provides oxygenated and nutrient rich blood to assist in collagen production.
